Visitors & Playing Tourist

In July we were lucky to have some visitors from our home state.  First, my Dad came out to visit for the first time since we’ve moved to South Dakota. Unfortunately, I had to work most of his visit but Alex was able to take him around to some of the usual sites.

Mount Rushmore
We always take our visitors to Mount Rushmore – when in Rome!

Spring Time

Summer is gradually creeping closer as spring is in full bloom in Rapid City.  Flowers are budding, the temperatures are okay but I’m over the wind, and tonight Alex and I were visited by two fawns.  The deer appeared in our downstairs window as we were watching T.V. and continued to munch on our lawn’s weeds for about 10 minutes.

Harney Peak Hike

*UPDATE – Now known as Black Elk Peak*

This summer we didn’t hike or camp as much as we usually do – maybe our wedding had something to do with this?  Alex and I decided that we needed to squeeze in at least one camping trip before summer ended so we headed over to Custer State Park.
